Dabbling a bit with scraps of fabrics. Made a coiled basket and a handful of fabric beads. Just little snippets. Some of which are pictured with the basket. Once the weather warms up ( oh, soon - I hope! ) I will take the beads out doors and give them a coat of some varnish like substance to firm them up. Perhaps give them a bit of shine as well. I cut up some more strips of fabrics and have a basket or two more to make. The batik fabrics are becoming my favorite basket materials. A jewel like look.
I am stitching along at a good clip on the Pay it Forward work I have committed to do this year. The first two are just about done. Two more to go! Here is a little peek at them.
I am keeping the size small. No larger then 5 x 7 inches so that I can get detailed enough with the work and still manage to make four this year! Knowing that I will be sending these off as part of the pay it forward makes them all the more special to me. Those who are receiving these are also making several works to send off - and on and on it will go. I like that!
